purchased as a house warming gift along w/ the black iron bar & 2stool set. It was very easy to assemble. Comfortable chairs. It looks great on the patio, but started to rust after the first rain then the paint began to flake. Summers are harsh in TX but I was disappointed that the wear showed after only a few months outside. The furniture is still usable but all the pieces will need to be painted for next season. Loved the overall look of both sets.
